I suspect your right, but honestly... His choice of language sounded much less like 'were thinking as a team', and much more like 'your all talking too loudly, you've given me a headache, so i'm going to shut you all up for a while'.



You mean the response that says, verbatim: "I'm thinking about the points that have been made, and I'm sure that we as a team will consider them going forward" ?

Honestly, your interpretation of that comment is the exact reason why it's good to shut it down for a little while. The conversation gets so charged that even a "we need time to think about it" response is viewed negatively.
